Waits, Tom - Ice Cream Man Lyrics




I'll be clickin' by your house about two forty-five
Sidewalk sundae strawberry surprise,
I got a cherry popsicle right on time
A big stick, mamma, that'll blow your mind

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band (yeah)
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you.

Baby, missed me in the alley, baby, don't you fret
Come back around and don't forget,
When you're tired and you're hungry and you want something cool,
Got something better than a swimming pool

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you.
'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you.

See me coming, you ain't got no change
Don't worry baby, it can be arranged:
Show me you can smile, baby just for me
Fix you with a drumstick, I'll do it for free

'Cause I'm the ice cream man, I'm a one-man band
I'm the ice cream man, honey, I'll be good to you.
Be good to you, be good to you,
Good to you yeah, good to you yeah, good to you yeah, good to you yeah,
Good to you yeah, good to you, I'll be good to you, I'll be good to you...

  65. November Mourning

    I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and assume this song isn't about the Hispanic guys driving around in the vans playing the annoying high pitched version of pop goes the weasel. And why is it that any time i think I've found my favorite song by Tom Waits i run into a songs like ice cream man?

    xPg13X

    November Mourning
    He's relentless, old as fuck, and some of his stuff is so terrible I find looking through his catalog exhausting to say the least so I stick to what I know for a long time
